3 medium baking potatoes
3 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons skim milk
1/2 cup nonfat plain yogurt
1 1/2 cups frozen corn, thawed
1 (4-ounce) can diced green chiles,
4 green onions, chopped
1 cup shredded reduced-fat Cheddar cheese


1. Preheat oven 400°F. Wash potatoes well, and dry thoroughly. With fork, prick skins over
entire surface.
2. Place potatoes directly on oven rack, bake 1 hour or until soft when squeezed. When done,
cut each potato in half lengthwise. Scoop out inside, leaving a thin shell.
3. In mixer, mash potato pulp until no lumps remain. Add butter, skim milk, and yogurt, mixing
well. Stir in corn, green chiles, green onions, and cheese, combining well. Spoon mixture into
shells. Sprinkle with paprika.
4. Lower oven to 350°F, bake 20 minutes or until cheese is melted and potatoes are hot.
